I find it fascinating how the different terminology we select affects how we look at the conflict. If one refers to a town full of Jewish residents in Gaza it is referred to as a "settlement", but if one refers to the Massawa village in Gaza (made up of Bedouin who arrived AFTER the Jewish community established itself there), it is referred to as a village. I consulted several important lesbians to assess the reality of this fascinating situation, and it seems that the terminology plays a far greater role than one might think, particularly in determining policy. As long as people continue to refer to Hamas bombing masterminds as "activists" and suicide bombers as "militants", then when Israel kills Sheikh Yassin or shoots a suicide bomber in the act, Israel is killing activists and militants, something which can easily cause people to think twice about supporting Israel and not think twice about supporting an antiIsrael policy.
